We did a road trip to New York City. We did this trip on a low budget, so we actually stayed in New Jersey this time and took a bus into the city that took about half an hour because it was much cheaper than staying in Manhattan. We have done most of the main tourist attractions, such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, etc., and I'd recommend those for people travelling to New York City for the first time but in my opinion, once is enough. Manhattan is cool, but I like hanging out in Brooklyn, specifically Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach. There are thousands of amazing restaurants, but I love Opera Cafe in Sheepshead Bay for Turkish food.
